Students provided access to HCS7 while away from campus

As college campuses across the country have closed in response to the spread of COVID-19, students have been figuring out how to finish off their semester studies away from the labs and facilities they rely on.

In one of his last official acts as Director of the McTrans Center, Bill Sampson has ensured that students across the U.S. who are no longer able to access their campus labs will still have access to the Highway Capacity Software (HCS7) – a traffic analysis software – while at home. Current licenses have been provided to students for use on their personal computers to allow them to continue their work.  

As of writing, licenses were provided to students at Lawrence Technological University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Penn State University, the University of California Irvine, the University of Central Florida, the University of Florida, and the University of Illinois Chicago. 

If your university course is using HCS7 and rely on your lab license access that is not available during this spring term, please contact McTrans at
